Slipknot: To Be... Or 'Knot To Be
Joel McIver, Record Collector, Spring 2001
TAKE THE INTENSITY of an old-school thrash metal band like Slayer and add the Noughties awareness of a media-straddling figure such as Eminem. Mix in the visual shock factor of Marilyn Manson or Coal Chamber and stir it all up with equal parts rage, insane humour and an in-your-face presence that is almost unequalled.
